A Very Special Evening with Lisa See 
Friday, June 30
 5:00 - 7:30 p.m.

We are delighted that author Lisa See will join us for an evening of cocktails, wine and appetizers, and a special presentation of her new novel , The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane.

Thanks to the author, this is a special fundraiser for the garden. Enjoy the evening for $50 per person which includes a copy of the book for the author to sign for you. 

The novel, recently released, tells the tale of a Chinese family whose life in a remote village revolves around the farming of tea. When one of the girls has a baby out of wedlock and puts her up for adoption, it sets in motion a story that explores culture, tradition, and the bonds between mothers and daughters.

Such themes are familiar to readers of Lee's earlier best-selling books: Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Shanghai Girls, China Dolls, Peony in Love, and Dreams of Joy. The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane debuted at
No. 6 on the New York Times best-sellers list, and Kirkus Reviews praised it as "a riveting exercise in fictional anthropology."

Meet Lisa See and support the garden. Space is limited so please make sure to reserve soon on the Programs and Reservations page of the website.

Complimentary valet parking will be provided. Street parking is prohibited.

Judy Wexler is more than a mere singer of songs.  She's an actress, mood painter, song archaeologist, and vocalist par excellence. --All About Jazz   
Based on the evidence... Judy Wexler can sing almost anything. -- Susan Stamberg, NPR

Vocalist Judy Wexler has been garnering fans across the country and around the world. A touring and recording artist, she has headlined at jazz festivals, performing arts centers and major jazz clubs both nationally and internationally.

Judy is widely known as a straight-ahead jazz singer and an inspired interpreter of lyrics, who has been cited repeatedly by critics as having the rare ability to find the essential truth of a song. She displays an unerring ear for underexposed gems and possesses a pliably warm, lustrous sound.

She released her 4th CD, What I See, in September 2013 on the Jazzed Media label. Receiving wide national jazz radio airplay and stellar reviews, What I See showcases Wexler's close creative ties to her longtime pianist/arranger and co-producer Jeff Colella. Music Man Blog calls the CD "one of the best jazz albums of the year!"
